In the same year that Domino Printing Sciences celebrates its 40th anniversary, several members of its digital printing solutions (DPS) division are also celebrating special milestones with the business.
Founded in June 1978, Domino is proud of its long and successful history of developing and manufacturing digital inkjet technology.
With 2700 employees worldwide, the company recognises that it is its people who have enabled Domino to be such a successful and leading player in the printing industry.
Renowned for recognising performance and celebrating success with its staff, Domino celebrates their continuous service with the company through its ‘Double Five Club’. Initially celebrating 10 years of continuous service, employees also go on to receive awards when they achieve 20 and 30 years of continuous service.
At a formal three course dinner recently held at The GuildHall in Cambridge, Nigel Bond, chief executive officer at Domino Printing Sciences, presented awards to 49 employees who were celebrating these milestones.
Steve Taylor, UK business manager for digital printing solutions, was one of the longest serving, receiving his award for 30 years continuous service. Initially an internal sales representative for Domino’s coding and marking division, Steve has progressed through the ranks and now has responsibility for managing the UK digital printing solutions’ sales, service and project management teams.
He said, ‘When I joined Domino, I had no idea that I would spend so much of my working life at one company. At that time, there were around 250 employees here in the UK, and today, when there are now more than three times as many, Domino still feels like one big, happy family treating all its employees with care and respect. Commitment and loyalty is appreciated and recognised, and staff are actively encouraged to develop their careers within the business – I am testament to this.’
Steve Westwood, UK sales manager for Domino DPS monochrome printing solutions, celebrated 20 years’ service and Martin Rimsky, DPS print samples technician and Carl Hearn, digital printing coordinator, both received their awards for 10 years’ service.
Nigel commented, ‘We now have almost 850 employees at our headquarters in Bar Hill and we are extremely proud that 43% have worked for Domino for more than 10 years (with 15% having over 20 years service). We recognise the importance of having a shared corporate vision and values, whereby every member of staff is made aware that they each have an important role to play in helping us achieve our corporate goals. People are a company’s greatest asset and we believe that we have such high levels of staff retention because we recognise achievement, reward performance, and provide training, support and encouragement for them to progress within the business. Hopefully, by creating a motivational and aspirational workplace environment, we encourage our staff to ‘Do more’ for our customers.’
